One Run

It was great to see several students, families, and staff last Saturday at the One Run. If you were not able to make the event this year, I hope we will see you next year.

Leader in Me

For the our new families, Hanawalt is a Leader in Me school. During the month of September, we are reviewing the 7 Habits before taking a deeper dive into each of the individual habits. Here are the habits and additional information:

Habit 1 Be Proactive
Habit 2 Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 3 Put First Things First
Habit 4 Think Win-Win
Habit 5 Seek First To Understand Then To Be Understood
Habit 6 Synergize
Habit 7 Sharpen the Saw

The Leader in Me is Franklin Covey’s whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.

The 7 Habits is a synthesis of universal, timeless principles of personal and interpersonal effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration and renewal, which are common to all people and cultures.
